This patent by Google mentions a database of reference medial images. All of these images are associated with metadata that includes clinical information related to the specimen or patient associated with the medical images.
In addition, the system has a search tool to receive an image query. Thus the system finds an image or images similar to the input image. And if the user wants to be sure, they can do more than one query to further refine the result.
Linknovate clients tracking Google movements could have spotted this patent in January 2021, and be 5 months ahead of this product launch, which, by the way, can also be spotted in Linknovate.
